Year-end Hymn Medley!

The year is about to change from 2020 to 2021! Let’s end the blog posts for this year with this awesome hymn medley sung by Lena Maria in Swedish and English!

Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank You for this year. This year was a hard one for us, but Lord, You have helped us through. Help us to always trust in You in all circumstances. Help us in the next year, too. Thank You for all the blessings You so graciously grant unto us who are so unworthy of anything but death. Thank You most of all for the free gift of grace granted to us through the substitutionary and satisfactory sacrifice and death of Jesus Christ, the Son of God, the King of kings and Lord and lords, who is now seated at the right hand of God making intercession for His elect people. Help us to have our one and only hope in Jesus Christ our God, the Creator of the earth and Savior of His people, the sheep of His pasture. May we be found faithful unto You, always abounding in the work of spreading the gospel, and anticipating the return of Jesus Christ our eternal King at the end of the world. Amen.

“He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.

21 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.”

— Revelation 22:20-21

Movie Monday: “Secrets of the Cosmos That Confirm the Bible”

Please enjoy this amazing presentation by Creationist Dr. Jason Lisle! (This will be the last “Movie Monday” of the year!)

“The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.

Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge.

There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.

Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun,

Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race.

His going forth is from the end of the heaven, and his circuit unto the ends of it: and there is nothing hid from the heat thereof.

The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple.

The statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes.

The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether.

10 More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.

11 Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward.

12 Who can understand his errors? cleanse thou me from secret faults.

13 Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me: then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the great transgression.

14 Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer.”

— Psalm 19 KJV

Movie Monday: “The Privileged Planet”

“The earth is the LORD’s, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.

For He hath founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods.

Who shall ascend into the hill of the LORD? or who shall stand in His holy place?

He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully.

He shall receive the blessing from the LORD, and righteousness from the God of his salvation.

This is the generation of them that seek Him, that seek Thy face, O Jacob. Selah.

Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.

Who is this King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle.

Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift them up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.

10 Who is this King of glory? The LORD of hosts, He is the King of glory. Selah.”

— Psalm 24:1-10

Shocking Message by Paul Washer

“Seek ye the Lord while He may be found, call ye upon Him while He is near:

Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the Lord, and He will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon.”

— Isaiah 55:6-7

The Theology of Christmas

Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:

Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:

But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:

And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.

Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:

10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;

11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

— Philippians 2:5-11

Nearer, My God, to Thee

And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto Me in heaven and in earth.

19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:

20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.”

— Matthew 28:18-20
